Everyone knows that a “smart TV” isn’t really a smart TV unless it’s powered by either Roku, Fire TV, or Apple software. Televisions from Samsung, Sony, LG, and others run some apps and they’re fine if all you want to do is stream Netflix. But no TV maker will ever support all the apps and games you want with their proprietary smart TV software. That means regardless of whether you buy a “smart TV” or just a regular TV, you’ll need to make it even smarter by adding a streaming media player like a Fire TV Stick, Roku device, or an Apple TV.
Of course, there is a very important exception that everyone should know about. Some vendors sell televisions that ditch the proprietary platforms and instead have Fire TV software or Roku software built right in. That’s pretty much the only time you’ll get away with not having to buy a separate streaming media player. And right now, several of the best options out there that have Fire TV software or Roku software preinstalled are on sale at their lowest prices of 2020. In fact, the two Fire TV Edition televisions we’re going to tell you about have been discounted all week, but they both just got even deeper discounts this morning!
First and foremost, the just-released Toshiba TF-32A710U21 32-inch Smart HD TV – Fire TV Edition is the single best-selling new television on Amazon’s entire site. It’s perfect for a guest bedroom, the kitchen, or any other space where you need a compact TV. This model retails for $180 but right now you can pick one up for just $139.99.
If you need something a bit larger for your living room, the basement, or your master bedroom, it doesn’t get much better than the new Toshiba 50LF621U21 50-inch Smart 4K UHD with Dolby Vision – Fire TV Edition. It has a stunning display, 4K resolution, and it’s on sale for $329.99 right now instead of $380.
If you prefer Roku to Amazon’s smart TV platform, you can score an even deeper discounts on a popular big-screen TV.
